Conservatory Shrubs & Climbers
In spring and summer this dramatic scented twiner produces flared, tubular white flowers which are stained magenta pink in the throat amongst glossy leaves. Plants flower particularly well if they are grown in pots which is why they do so well in conservatories. You can keep them pruned to encourage ample flowering.
A very attractive shrub which is grown for its rich fragrance as well as its colour. The clusters of waxy white flowers open from spring to autumn amongst leathery, glossy foliage. Appreciates slightly more humid conditions than many other conservatory plants.
This scrambling shrub brings about stunningly rich, verdant leaves juxtaposed by summer sky blue, star-shaped flowers. Best grown in a pot, helped up a trellis or wall of a conservatory and placed outside on a patio over summer. They require a temperature that remains above 0 degrees Celsius and only need to be pruned once in springtime.
Passiflora x exoniensis
Passion flowers are always a popular choice, but this hybrid is particularly breath-taking. Produce vivid rosy, red, 10 cm flowers in summer and autumn which look down at you from the conservatory roof. These are often followed by passion fruits that are around 9cm in size. They require a temperature above 1 degree Celsius and happy outside in summer.
Brugmansia arborea ‘Knightii’
This rich scented shrub features pure white flowers. Flowering from late spring right into autumn, cut back in spring to prevent plants becoming too large.
Citrus x microcarpa
Produces large numbers of small orange fruits. Excellent as marmalade, the fruits can also be frozen whole to be used as an ice cube. The fruits are preceded by fragrant white flowers in spring and summer.
The ivory white flowers of this bushy shrub produce exceptional aromas. The blooms appear singly or in small clusters and they open over many weeks in summer and autumn amongst glossy, dark green foliage.
A vigorous climber with twining stems, the bright yellow flowers sit amongst dark leathery foliage in summer. Require a temperature above 5 degrees Celsius, but will grow outside along the Cornish coast. The shoots need tying in regularly to avoid the plant becoming too tangled and unmanageable.
This Madeiran native has a delightful scent. The white flowers open from purplish buds mainly towards the end of summer. Its lax stems make a twining climber which needs tying in regularly but is relatively tough.
